Manpot's Tales of the Tropics
by Malcolm Boyes
Drift on Caribbean tradewinds through white sand beaches and ramshackle bars where we meet a gang of colourful characters that thrive in those little latittudes. From Hollywood superstars Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando to local legends Big Red the Gangster, Johnnie One Nut, Bomba and Quito Rymer get carried away by stories too strange and funny to be fiction. You just can't make this stuff up.
